P&K Lie Wheel Truing Service Logo

A wheel truing and repair service is available for all hand built wheels and numerous factory wheels which use standard wheelbuilding components.

Wheel truing starts from £15 per wheel, and includes a full assessment of the components and advice on any additional work required to return the wheel to a fully serviceable condition. This is a more in-depth approach to wheel truing than you would expect from a local bike shop, and where a wheel has sustained damage you will be informed of the long-term durability of your repair.

Wheels are assessed for lateral and radial trueness using a P&K Lie truing stand before measurements of spoke tension are taken using a P&K Lie analogue tensiometer and Wheel Fanatyk digital tensiometer. The wheel is brought back into true both laterally and radially while maintaining an even spoke tension, which helps to ensure the longevity of the repair. At this point the wheel will be thoroughly de-stressed to ensure the settling of components, and the process repeated. Tension may be added if it is necessary to improve the performance of the wheel. The dish of the wheel is checked with an EVT Tools trigger dishing stick and adjusted as needed. In many cases it is possible to return the wheel with better tolerances than were achieved during it’s initial construction.

Fully insured Fedex delivery of your wheelset costs £16 including a sturdy wheel box. Under normal circumstances I endeavour to return all serviced wheels within 7 days of receipt.
